With the America Invents Act on the verge of enactment and USPTO reexamination reform in sight, companies are likely to witness profound changes in how their IP assets are obtained and enforced in the United States. Undoubtedly, these changes will raise numerous practical questions for businesses, including how this will impact their current IP strategies and how they can maintain a competitive edge.
Please join us for a Foley Executive Briefing Series program that will explore the latest IP trends. Topics to be addressed include:
- Patent reform legislation
- National IP strategy
- Accelerated exam
- Innovation policy
- Pending Supreme Court and Federal Circuit decisions
These and other topics will be addressed in an interactive panel session led by Foley Partner Sharon R. Barner, former Deputy Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Deputy Director, USPTO (2009 – 2011).
